CALL FOR ART: BLACK AND WHITE EXHIBITION 2020
ENTRY DEADLINE: December 18 - Dec 22

To work only in black and white is a challenge for the artist. It forces them to express their thoughts and ideas without the use of the colors which are so fundamental to our view of the world. Only black, white and shades of grey can be used to express their vision.
Texture, rhythm and movement take on greater meaning as we are forced to perceive without the benefit of the color that normally enhances our everyday life. We must participate in the work by providing an emotional color of our own. All good art plunges us into our own experiences. A black and white presentation can make us delve even deeper.
(**For Photography submissions - Please refer to, and use the Black & White Photography Entry Form)

EXHIBIT: January 11 - February 9
RECEPTION & MEET THE ARTISTS: - January 18, 1-4p

Hi there! In this tutorial I’ll show you an interesting way of looking at the watercolor process - dividing it into 2 steps.

1. Painting the highlights
2. Painting the shadows

I hope you enjoy this one! 😊🙏🏼.
